Tourist Information

Things to see & do in Aberfoyle

 Aberfoyle is a small but important village which lies in one of Europe's most beautiful locations at  the Lomond & Trossachs National Park with Loch Lomond lying to the West, Loch Katrine, Loch Achray and Loch Venacher to the North and the Lake of Menteith, Scotland's only "lake" lying to the East. The village is without doubt the most important gateway to the Trossachs and has something for everyone.

Many of Scotlands historical figures such as Rob Roy and Mary Queen of Scots have connections with Aberfoyle.  Rob Roy MacGregor was born nearby Loch Katrine, and his well known cattle stealing exploits took him all around the area surrounding Aberfoyle. There currently stands a tree in the village that MacGregor was reputed to have climbed and hid in to escape the clutches of the law. Also, Mary Queen of Scots visited nearby Inchmahome Priory often as a child, and during her short reign. She also used the priory during her short reign, particularly in 1547, where she felt safe from the English Army.
